A Bengal tiger in India has become remarkably popular with tourists after some ironic stripes were spotted on his head.

Munna is a 14-year-old male tiger at the Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh, located in central India. Over the past few months, the tiger has become somewhat of a celebrity after stories spread of strange markings on the cat’s head.

“I wasn’t sure if the markings were a myth until I saw Munna for myself and I was amazed when I saw him,” explained Indian photographer Sarosh Lodhi. “I’d never seen anything like it before.”

What tourists were buzzing about Munna was that the tiger in his black markings literally has the word “CAT” spelled out on his forehead.
